With a russet Kamaka ukulele tucked away in a box with Little Orphan Annie decoder rings, Lodian Ruby Hennenberg patiently waited her turn to be given a price for the goods by workers of Treasure Hunters Roadshow on Tuesday morning.

Like dozens of others in the lobby of the Hampton Inn and Suites on Beckman Road, Hennenberg was there to see if items in her home were rare valuables. People carrying painted ceramics, rare dolls and jewelry crowded into the waiting room of the hotel because the Treasure Hunters Antique Roadshow is in town until Friday and offering checks on the spot in exchange for collectors’ items. The Illinois-based company hosts events across the country where workers look to purchase items from people in the community who are eager to clean out their garage and make some money in the process. While not everyone walks away from the events with more money and less clutter, many of those who attended the event Tuesday said they were pleased with the results.
